Batman sequel escapes from Arkham

Arkham Asylum 2 details unveiled

The newly announced Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 will likely range beyond the Asylum walls according an interview with Rocksteady's Paul Denning published in a recent issue of PC Zone magazine.

"You could always expand [on Arkham Asylum] and there are games in the past that have gone down that route," said Denning when asked if the dev team would consider other canonical Gotham settings. "But I think you're right. Gotham itself is a fantastically realised fictional city and there are so many places that would probably be ideal for gameplay and great to explore."

Though the teaser trailer recently revealed at the VGA Awards may have encouraged fans of the first game to imagine the Dark Knight's next outing as a freewheeling adventure through a sandbox Gotham, Denning (a senior programmer on the new title) was quick to dispel those rumors.

"If Arkham Asylum had been that kind of game I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have been as good," said Denning. "I think sandbox games that do that well are so hard to realise; GTA is obviously a fantastic example of one that gets it right but there are so many that get it wrong and I think you have to be so careful when you take that route."

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
